Hey, who do I get more followers on the blog?

I have been at the 85 member mark for a while now.  Went down to 84 and got back up to 85.  And that took a long time to achieve. I have had a bit of views on the blog about 100,000 views. Which is not that much when you think about how much people use the internet.

Maybe its how I don't use labels? Maybe how I title? Or the content?

Please tell me its not the content?

Yeah, its the content.

But what am I to do?

I can't sing. I am a little tubby around the middle. So a torso shot may not be such a good idea.

What to do? Think, think, think,  mmmm?

Hey! I went out to the Legislative Building in Winnipeg, Manitoba today. What a wind. The storm - blizzard is hitting us today. So not as many people out for the Idle No More rally on the steps of the Leg. Lot of police though. Good to see the police are interested in who's out there. Never know a Round Dance might break out.  Holy Heck it was cold. How cold was it?  It was so cold, non of the Manitoba politicians came out for photographs.

Maybe I could blog about something else?

Let's see.  I can't paint. But I do love art. All sorts of art. Even art that is no damn good. Or as the intellectuals call it, Folk Art. But what do I know about Art?  It's all in the way you look at it. I guess.

Maybe I can talk about being a Granpa?  I like being one. Doesn't mean I am good at it. Heck I get into arguments with my 3 year old Grandson and he calls me an Ass. I call him an Arsehole. He calls himself Spiderman right now and yells at me not to call him, Boy, JackJack, Jack or Jackson. So I call myself Granpa man. He calls me Lizard man? And my five year old Granddaughter is sensitive. "You're mad at Me" and cries. I buy her stuff. So maybe that is not my area of expertise.

What to do, what to do?

I can always take a break and watch movies. I like movies. Thing is many of the movies I like, never get nominated for Oscars? I must be watching the wrong movies.

In any case. I will see you later.
